Narrator:

Listen to this voice. It’s reasonable. You can hear me, you can understand me. I don’t know you, but my voice lets you know that I love you. Let’s begin.

 

(Instrumental)

 

Narrator:

“Had I the heavens embroidered cloths,

Enwrought with golden and silver light

The blue and the dim and the dark cloths

Of night and light and the half-light,

I would spread the cloths under your feet:

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;

I have spread my dreams under your feet;

Tread softly (tread softly, tread softly, tread softly)

because you tread on my dreams.”
